Solenoid driver circuit

Recommended Posts

Hi Novice1,

the type of diode used depends largely on the solenoid.

The more current the solenoid pulls the higher the EMF pulse.

For solenoids in the order of a miniature relay a 1N4148 will suffice.

For high power solenoids I recommend using Schottky diodes like SBxx.
